The payroll cutoff is the deadline by which Remote must receive notifications about changes to be reflected in an employee's salary for that month. This relates to onboarding new hires, paying out incentives and approved expenses and overtime compensation.
In certain countries where we run a semi-monthly payroll, we have a different cutoff for incentives and expense reimbursements.
To ensure such payroll items are paid out in the same month they are submitted, they need to be inputted on the platform no later than the 11th of the month, 11:59 PM UTC, or the Friday before the 11th if the 11th falls on a weekend or public holiday. If this deadline is missed, the request may be processed in an off-cycle payroll run.
Note: An exception in the cutoff is made for Bulgaria, Germany, and countries where we have a semi-monthly payroll. In Bulgaria, the payroll cutoff date is on the 1st of the month, different from the usual 11th, while the payroll cutoff in Germany varies from month to month.

When it comes to changes to an existing employee’s contract, this will require a contract amendment. The deadline for requesting a contract amendment is the 5th of the month.
